Watch the planes take off and touch the clouds
Thinkin' I'm in a mess, in trouble now
Buried her in a hole last night
Underneath a tree


Chorus:
My life went wrong
When I met valerie
My life went wrong
When I met valerie


One night we walked into a field
Behind the trailer park she kneeled
The moon was hangin' like a mask
I lost my temper for the last time thenЎє


Chorus repeat


Repeat this stanza 4x:
Valerie is gone now
Valerie is sleeping
Valerie is sleeping now...
